Today I have swatches for the China Glaze summer collection - Off Shore - or at least part of it as I'm missing 3 bottles from the collection, can you believe it?!
Don't you hate you when there's a new collection and a few bottles of it is already gone before you can get your hands on them?
China Glaze Off Shore collection is made up of 12 beautiful creme polishes, some with a hint of jelly formula in them.
Let's check them out now!
China Glaze Feel the Breeze
China Glaze Feel the Breeze is a creamy princess pink creme polish.
Usually I'm like "pink again"? But this time, I must admit I really love the pinks in this collection.
Feel the Breeze is so so creamy looking yet it's so easy to apply. I think this is probably the best China Glaze creme formula to date.
A very pretty & chic color this is. I would definitely recommend anyone to get this!
China Glaze Float On
China Glaze Float On is a bright creamy hot chick pink creme polish. (LOL.. sorry, but it's really hard to describe the difference between this and Feel The Breeze using just words)
Another creamy pink polish. Float On is slightly darker & brighter than Feel The Breeze. If you ask me which 1 I prefer more, I would choose Float On because it's really gorgeous when used as a full mani.
I would probably use Feel The Breeze more for a nail art.
China Glaze Wait N Sea
China Glaze Wait N Sea is a blue leaning teal creme polish with a formula that is almost jelly.
Super easy to apply, though a little sheer at first coat. Actual color is a little more blue than what is shown in my pictures.
China Glaze If in Doubt, Surf it Out
China Glaze If in Doubt, Surf it Out is a soft peachy Orange creme polish.
Very nice & smooth formula, a little sheer but builds up nicely. Color-wise, I'm not so into this. It's a mustard yellow leaning orange that's a little weird for me.
China Glaze Stoked to be Soaked
China Glaze Stoked to be Soaked is a bright tangerine Orange creme polish.
Very creamy texture, yet super smooth & easy to apply. Super bright Orange that pops.
China Glaze I Sea the Point
China Glaze I Sea the Point is a royal blue creme polish with a hint of purple. Definitely darker & deeper than what is shown in the picture.
The formula for this polish is absolutely HORRIBLE. I mean it.
Somehow, the polish and the pigmentation doesnt seems to mix well even though I shook it really hard for quite a few times. Some parts of it is really gloppy yet parts of it is so thin. It's like painting with half dried paint. A complete nightmare.
A real pity cos the color is so pretty.
China Glaze Sea’s the Day
China Glaze Sea’s the Day is a tomato red creme polish.
A beautiful bright red polish that is thin yet opaque in 1 coat. I painted 2 coats anyway for the creamy texture.
The formula & color reminds me alot of OPI Cajun Shrimp which is one of my favourite to-go polish.
China Glaze Dune Our Thing
China Glaze Dune Our Thing is a raspberry maroon creme polish.
Great formula as well, creamy yet not too thick. 2 easy coats in my picture btw.
China Glaze X-TA-SEA
China Glaze X-TA-SEA is an eggplant purple creme polish.
Another beautiful creamy polish. 2 easy coats to achieve this.
China Glaze Be More Pacific
China Glaze Be More Pacific is a soft apple green creme polish.
Formula is slightly on the thick and streaky side, but I do love the color.
China Glaze Shore Enuff
China Glaze Shore Enuff is a bright (almost neon) grass green creme polish. Actual color is much brighter than what is captured in the photos.
*Note* For those ordering online, please take extra note that Be More Pacific is the light green one, and Shore Enuff is the darker grass green one.
I'm been seeing quite a few online stores listing them as the other way round, but I think it's because China Glaze changed the names of these 2 colors just before launch.
So please take note!
China Glaze Sun Upon My Skin
China Glaze Sun Upon My Skin is a bright pastel yellow that is not at all neon or striking. A beautiful yellow that is brighter than China Glaze Lemon Fizz, yet not in your face bright.
Formula wise it's also a little streaky and thick, but still workable.
In summary, I'm really in love with these thick creamy polishes from the China Glaze Off Shore collection.
This is probably my favourite creme formula ever.
Are you loving these as much as I do?
